PGP Ultra

What do you guys think of the PGP Ultra? What kind of improvement is it over a regular PGP and how do they perform in the field?

Also,how does it compare to the Rainbird 5000 series? Which would you choose for lower pressure systems?

Why not just the ordinary PGP?

5000 fan myself. Not much difference though; both good heads.

Always kind of an irrelevant question for the DIY crowd, as they will have little problem replacing failed heads of whatever make and model.

I am pretty sure the ultra does not have a shut off. I think the only difference is it takes the I 20 nozzles and it will do a true 360 when adjusted all the way.

Did'nt notice anything better than a pgp adj. If you switch, remember the ultra nozzles and adj nozzles are not interchangeable. I'm using pgp adj's only, and may switch to rainbirds soon......
